FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) -Hundreds pf people took to the streets of Fort Wayne Sunday afternoon to raise awareness about suicide.

“Out of the Darkness Community Walk” seeks to bring the community together to address suicide prevention and support those who have been affected by mental illness.

We spoke with one mother about losing her son 8 years ago.

“We were lost. not just lost, but had no idea what resources were in the community or where to go and what to do,” said Mel Shade. “It’s very important to us as a family that other people know there’s resources out there and people out there to help them and nobody’s ever alone.”

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention offers resources for mental health care, crisis situations and more online.
